Andy Kirkaldy: At the Independent, all sports are appreciated

Posted on May 25, 2017 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Last week I hung out for a while at the Middlebury College track. Middlebury Union High School was hosting Vergennes and three other teams at the only local high school track and field meet of the spring, and the weather was finally cooperating — mostly sunny and around 80 degrees with a pleasant breeze.

About the first thing that happened was Tiger senior Josh Girard popping a long jump. Turned out it was his personal best, and he broke 19 feet for the first time.

Letter to the Editor: Columnist right about Trump

Posted on May 25, 2017 |
By Larry Booker



Mark Shields is a syndicated columnist and news analyst. He appears, together with David Brooks of the New York Times, on the “PBS News Hour” every Friday evening. This is what he said last Friday. “George Washington couldn’t tell a lie, Richard Nixon couldn’t tell the truth and Donald Trump doesn’t know the difference.” You can do with this whatever you want, but I believe it rings true.

Letter to the Editor: Scott proposal must be rejected

Posted on May 25, 2017 |
By Jill Charbonneau



The Vermont State Labor Council AFL CIO unequivocally supports the Vermont National Education Association (NEA) in their struggle to protect collective bargaining rights. While Gov. Scott’s administration has put forward a radical “plan” to save taxpayers a projected $26 million, this plan appears to be a cousin to Trump’s skinny budget proposal, half-baked and filled with sound bites and little else.

Victor Nuovo: Aristotle's political inequities: We've come a long way

Posted on May 25, 2017 |
By Victor Nuovo



Editor’s note: This is the eighth in a series of essays by Middlebury College Professor Emeritus Victor Nuovo on the origins of western political thought.

Aristotle was a naturalist. He believed that nature comprised the whole of reality. He conceived of nature in two respects: as productive power and as the totality of its products, which he imagined not as a random aggregate of things, but as a well formed universe, ruled by intelligence, and, because it is self generating, eternal.

VERGENNES — The case of a wandering toddler preoccupied Vergennes police and state officials for several hours on May 15.

Police that Monday morning responded to a report of a 3- or 4-year-old boy walking barefoot down the middle of North Green Street and brought him to the station. Eventually, they were able to identify him through an item in his pockets and contact his father in an apartment not far from where he was found. They also contacted the Department for Children and Families.
